It must be an unusual PR agency, but it can't be telling him to say what he did this morning on NBC's "Today" show, could it?
The Chicago Sun-Times' Lynn Sweet reports:
On the press offensive, Blagojevich has lined up national interviews--NBC, ABC, "The View" to run as his impeachment trail starts Monday before the Illinois state senate in Springfield.
Blagojevich, wearing a blue ivy league shirt, told NBC he has not prepared mentally for possibly going to prison. The impeachment was triggered by Blagojevich's Dec. 9 arrest on criminal charges, including trying to auction off President Obama's vacant senate seat.
As he was taken from his home by federal agents on Dec. 9, Blagojevich told NBC, "I thought about Mandela, Dr. King and Gandhi and tried to put some perspective to all this and that is what I am doing now."
Blagojevich will be in New York tomorrow, where he will appear on several television shows, including the aforementioned "The View."
Here is who I'm comparing Blago to: Lennington Small, Otto Kerner, Dan Walker, and George Ryan.
